Milk Supply

ADFC will enter into our standard form Milk Supply Agreement (both exclusive and non-exclusive) with a supplier in the following circumstances:

  1. The supplier has a demonstrated ability to consistently meet the quality requirements set out in our Milk Supply Policy. 
  2. The supplier is a shareholder of ADFC (or agrees to become a shareholder of ADFC). 
  3. The supplier holds a current food safety licence from its relevant state regulatory authority.
  4. The supplier is able to supply milk on an all-year-round basis. 
  5. The supplier is capable of supplying at least 800 litres of milk per collection
  6. The supplier is located in one of ADFC’s milk collection regions (which currently covers the majority of Victoria). 
  7. The supplier has a collection point that a milk tanker can safely access on an all-year-round basis.
  8. ADFC currently has the capacity to accept the supplier’s milk based on the current needs of ADFC customers. 

ADFC took a really personal approach from day one, making it clear we would fit in well. Since signing the contract seven years ago, we haven’t looked back.
